On an emotional night for Adam Hall, his Delmarva Shorebirds teammates tossed their third shutout of the homestand as they blanked the Charleston RiverDogs 5-0 at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.
On Strike Out Cancer Night, Hall caught a first pitch strike from his father, Tyler, who has been fighting myeloma with plasma cell involvement of the central nervous system for the past six years.
Tyler & Adam took the field together for the National Anthem wearing tonight’s special jerseys, which were auctioned off along with several Baltimore Orioles items to benefit pediatric patients at PRMC Salisbury through Brooke’s Toy Closet.
Matt Hammonds earned the win for the Shorebirds with four scoreless innings of relief, allowing just a hit and a walk while striking out six. Josh Maciejewski was tagged with the loss for the RiverDogs as he went six innings, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while punching out two.
Leading 4 – 0 Delmarva added another run in the eighth that helped put the game to bed. After Hall was hit by a pitch, Johnny Rizer sent him all the way home as he scalded a double into right center field, giving the game its final line of 5-0 Delmarva.
